Object Description

Large Fine c. 1890 Tabriz Carpet
6.09 x 4.58 m

The city of Tabriz in Northwest Persia has long been known as a centre for Persian arts, culture, and literature, but especially for the quality of its carpets, with a tradition dating back as early as the 14th Century. Thanks to its location, incorporating influences from nearby Azerbaijan and Turkey, its weavings are among the most diverse of any city in Iran, and antique Tabriz carpets are especially distinguished by their tight weaves and close adherence to the traditions of Classical Persian rug weaving design.

This fine, grand-scale 19th Century example features a high-grade weave, lending a crisp clarity to the drawing. The composition employs a well-balanced all-over design, with delicate floral motifs in a wide range of vegetable-dyed tones, including shades of sky-blue, cornflower blue, and terracotta, worked over a soft ivory ground and framed by a 10-part border of great proportions.

Retained in very good condition for everyday use, with its outer borders and short fringes preserved on all sides – remarkable for a carpet over 130 years old. Its colours have taken on a charming age-related patina.

One of the finest examples of its type we have had the pleasure of having in our stock in some time, to suit a wide variety of interiors.
